Reading milestones and school award

June 3, 2015

Both of us are avid readers and own a size-able collection of books. My father took me often to libraries and instructed me to write short stories during vacations. Unfortunately books were costly and salaries low in my childhood which meant I owned very few books. One of the first books my father bought was Charles Dicken’s David Copperfield. I remember reading it and re reading it innumerable times. So, when I had Cuddles I started buying him books right from the age of six months. Today he has two shelves full of all kinds of books. In KG 2 he started reading small books with one line descriptions per page. By grade 1 he graduated to reading more such books as well as Chota Bheems, Twinkles, Champak, Shikari Shambhoo and other magazines. In March he completed reading two full books by Enid Blyton.

He has now discovered the joy of reading Roald Dahl. After finishing  George’s Marvellous Medicine he is now on to reading Matilda. It makes me very happy to see that along with his craze for constructing new things he is also hooked on to reading.

In other news he received a certificate of commendation from the school signed by the Principal for his performance in grade 1 making us super proud of his achievements. It was totally his effort as he missed school many times last year.
